Though strays dogs create nuisance and have role in major accidents, environmentalistsproclaim the need to protect them. Recent developments in the city, shows that stray dogs are creating unwanted problems for the city dwellers. Important residential areas of our city are covered with many groups of such dogs and often disturb traffics. Dog bites are also reported in some areas of the city. Many dogs have died in accidents and due tocruelty to them.

Stray dogs are not straying animals. They have a well defined structure of living in terms of place time and food. Their sense of the group and community life is far more defined than human beings. Each and every dog has their own living area and dwelling place and even in a group. Any member crossing the limits of the area is not tolerated. Each group of dogs in a locality has their own identity, lifestyle and even separated from othergroups. In many ways they help our society to maintain peaceful life.

Dogs help many residential areas to avoid thieves and strangers out of the area. The presence of dogs helped many people in detecting anti social activities in our city. But stray dogs also created problems for our city dwellers. Dogs compelled to react violently at times due to cruelty. In important residential areas, dogs use to cross roads which could result in accidents or traffic problems. Cruelty to dogs are also reported in parts of the city due to these reasons.

Environmentalists are against the destructive attitude towards stray dogs, as they play a role in maintaining our ecosystem. They point out 2 important reasons for increasing stray dogs are.

1.      Ill management of garbages.

1. Garbages allow stray dogs have a good source of food and encourage them to live there.

2.     2.  Presence of hawkers and street dwellers who consider stray dogs as pets.

Shilesh Kotkar, a city based environmentalist and animal lover, said “though stray dogs create problems, they play a crucial role in our ecosystem. It is important to find an efficient solution for the problem. Cruelty to dogs will not only increase the violent reaction of dogs, but also affect our ecosystem. Every living being in our system depends on each other for shelter, food and other necessary activities.”

Stray dogs should be treated well, immunized and sterilized to keep the ecosystem in balance.
